The new novel from the Sunday Times bestselling author – the perfect book to read with your book club or reading group
‘ Just downright brilliant… a transcendent, transporting experience ’ Observer
A motherless girl grows up in isolated luxury, hidden from the world by her wealthy father. She believes their life together is normal – but as time passes, she has a growing sense that something between them is very wrong.
She cannot escape, so she seeks solace in her books. Her favourite tales are those that conjure ancient worlds – of angry gods and heroic mortals, one of whom will some day come to her rescue.
Soon, she will forget where the page ends and her mind begins.
‘ A full-throttle blast of storytelling mastery ’ Max Porter
